1999 Rover Mini 40 Limited Edition. 1275cc. MPi. Mulberry Red, full leather. 2 owners. Very rare.



We are very pleased to offer a rare piece of Mini history, a Mini 40th Limited edition. Built in very low numbers to commemorate 40 years of Mini production, 400 for the UK and 400 for Japan in seven colours, this example is finished in Mulberry red and can only be one of 50 made and has a matching red leather interior and finished with Sportspack arches and wheels, gold pin stripes, 40 Bonnet badge and twin spots. Mini 40s were factory Sportspacks and have always been very popular as they offer a nice alternative to the Cooper as they have classy stying and interiors and are now very seldom seen as many were snapped up by collectors. Our 40 has covered 69k in 20 years with only two previous owners and is accompanied with its original handbooks, service book and both fobs.

We have recently lavished much time and expense on the Mini and have replaced a large amount of parts and panels. We have worked through the Mini front to back and the long list briefly comprises of; new brakes, calipers, discs, pads, drums, cylinders, shoes, suspension works, four new tyres, tracking, full engine service, heritage, front wings, A panels, vented sills, full respray in Mulberry red, new headlamps, bumpers, grille, rubbers and pin stripes and refurbished alloys. This is a breif list to illustrate the love this Mini has had.

On the road its great fun. Mini 40s are the same spec as Coopers so they have brisk performance and excellent handling. This is an MPI Mini which stands for Multi Point fuel injection, featuring a drivers airbag, side impact beams and an alarm and immobiliser, they also have taller gearing making long distance cruising a pleasure. All you need to do is turn the key and go.

Mini 40s, in my opinion, have a one of the nicest interiors ever fitted to any Mini. Grenadine red leather seats and a platinum silver dash with six magnolia dials with a “40” emblem on the clocks. We have also just fitted a new cloth roof lining the same as the original and the stereo has a USB and AUX port, there is also a 12V adapter. They have a real luxury feel inside which matches the whole look of the Mini.

This 40 has a very solid shell with many new heritage panels, it has vented sills, solid subframes and floors and is good to go for many more years of Mini fun. We have also fully serviced it and it has a full MOT and is ready to go and be enjoyed and would make a great companion to the many 60th Birthday Mini celebrations happening this year and puts you in an exclusive Mini club.
